This week has had many ups and downs. I had many opportunities to learn about discernment and how to follow the spirit =)
Skype on Christmas was fun! The allotted amount of time (49 minutes) went by super fast! Christmas didn't feel as much like Christmas this year. Maybe that was partly because we talk about Jesus Christ 24-7 as missionaries already that it was less of a reminder and more of a reinforcement =)
Two of our investigators are so solid that it almost seems like they came right out of The District DVDs! Debbie is Ben's aunt and they both have baptismal dates for. Debbie gave up coffee so willingly this last week and Ben is giving up smoking. They both recognize the blessings that the gospel bring into their lives on a daily basis and they are very excited to be baptized!
We went on exchanges with the Sister Training Leaders this week and it was so much fun! I got to go serve in Garland for a day! Sister Kerr served there right before being double transferred into Dallas 6 to train me. Everyone there was still talking about her and I got to brag that she trained me =) The exchange was really fun because none of our plans came out as we had planned them and we had some crazy lessons with a lot of opportunities to laugh afterwards. We also got a flat tire, it was punctured by a screw, so that was also an adventure.
Hope y'all had a merry Christmas!
